January 2020 international activities

January has been a busy month for me with 2 international conference presentations (at the MusicaFemina Symposium in Hungary and Mobile Storytelling Congress in China) and the production of the Music across Borders collaborative project with musicians from Australia and Poland.

MusicaFemina International Symposium took place in Budapest as part of the Transparent Sound New Music FestivalAt the symposium, I participated in the Gender and the Music Industries panel and presented a paper titled “Female Agency and Perspectives in the Communities of Mobile Musicians” informed by my involvement in several online communities of musical practice.

Below are a few pics from this excellent event:

Later in January, I had the opportunity to deliver a video presentation on Machine assisted composition and portability in mobile music making and participate online in the Mobile Storytelling Congress & MINA‘s 9th Mobile Innovation Screening & Film Festival at the University of Nottingham in China. In addition, I contributed a soundtrack to the conference video trailer and the MINA film festival trailer. The video of my congress presentation discussing and demonstrating music production while travelling on trains should be available on YouTube soon, so stay tuned.

I was also interviewed on one of the Polish TV channels where I talked about my music production and research projects as well as about the ‘Music across Borders’ project that I set up to facilitate collaboration between my Melbourne Polytechnic music production students and Polish jazz musicians.
